2017 Spring Sports Letter

February 2017

High School and Middle School spring sports teams will begin official practice the week of Monday, March 6th. Each coach will develop their own practice schedule. If you are interested in being a part of a spring sports team you should contact the coach to receive all necessary information. On Monday, March 6th at 5pm we will host a player/parent information night to provide an overview of the athletic website, an opportunity to meet your child’s coach, and discuss the season expectations and requirements. This meeting will begin directly after all spring sports 1st practice.

Every athlete MUST have a PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-participation Physical Evaluation (CIPPE) form completed and approved by the athletic office prior to participation. In other words, you must have an athletic physical and the correct form must be used. The CIPPE forms are available in the school office or on the school website under Athletic Resources. The CIPPE forms are the only acceptable forms for athletics. If your child already has a sports physical on file in the athletic office then only section 7: Re-Certification by Parent/Guardian of the PIAA Physical form needs to be fill out and returned to the athletic office before the start of the spring season.

Game schedules have been posted on the school website under Athletics Schedules. You can search and subscribe to the specific schedules you want, as well as sign up for notifications if there is a change to the schedule for your team. Only games, scrimmages, and directions will be posted to the website.

Spring Needs: We are looking for a parent volunteer to assist with the MS track and/or MS baseball programs. If you have an interested in either of these sports and would like to help the coaches this season please contact myself or the coach.
